Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: yesterday

Come on in, pull up a chair!

Picture yourself spending some time with congenial friends, sharing your lives and pictures from your cell phones." They're curious about that cool game, song, movie, camping trip, art show, or other event that fascinated you. You talk about all kinds of stuff, poetry, styles, personal achievements, relationships, and bad days. You can share your inner child, and laugh together. They sympathetically listen to your feelings about serious topics like politics or climate change, even when they don't agree.

Personal validation comes from paying attention to one another, giving more than you get. Everyone respects you and themselves, despite our amazing range of personal tastes and interests. They'll tell you they don't agree with an idea or behavior without implying you're a bad person or somehow deficient. It's an "I'm OK, You're OK" kind of fellowship, where nobody tries to make himself look better by picking on somebody else.

Nobody here is into mind games. A discussion started with a loaded guilt-throwing question will be deleted.

This group is not intended to compete with other groups on topics they cover but to "fill in the cracks." Whenever a discussion dwells at length on a topic for which there's an existing group, we urge you to provide members a link to that group to continue along their tangent.

A comment is a shout-out, which will get lost in a few days, because the comment wall is just a random stack.

Please start a discussion to share stories, photos, and videos. Replies will pop up in your "latest activity" and a conversation can develop from the feelings and thoughts you contributed. Groups are built on discussions.

degrading love — part one (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Grinning Cat Nov 22. 11 Replies

Love is by many considered among the highest of positive emotions.  Yet when love of the type offered by deities is examined, something seems to go seriously wrong.  The love of Yahweh seems less a gift than a demand, not so much beneficence as a…Continue

The first two...at the Lunch Counter (Iforgot to say that there are 7; 4 girls and 3 boys)

LOL, love the thinking poster!

The sequence starting with Tony's String Theory Flying Spaghetti Monster to The Flying Atheist's Bichon Frise cupcakes to Ska8eycat's Jasmine reminds me of one of the most popular threads in the extinct Atheist and Agnostics Myspace group. It was image association, like "this picture reminds me of." Do you think we should have an image association discussion?

This would be my association (triggered by the sequence)

Comment by sk8eycat on September 13, 2012 at 9:28pm

I promised I'd post a photo of Jasmine and her babies as soon as her human sent me some...and she (the human) FORGOT...till I prodded her about it today.  The puppes were born last Friday night-Saturday AM.  The photo was taken yesterday.  They grow FAST!

Jasmine and Family

Yum yum. They look good enough to eat. Or pet. Whatever. Just give me a tall cold glass of milk, and I'm in.

Who likes cupcakes?

Comment by Tony Carroll on September 13, 2012 at 9:00pm

String theory finally makes sense!!! All hail his noodly appendages!

Tony and Booklover those are great! I love them!
How is everyone doing?
Right - religious people don't want you to think for yourself.
Comment by Tony Carroll on September 13, 2012 at 7:17pm

Melinda, not only the religious, but anybody that is close minded, bigoted, racist, mysogynistic, etc. You get the drift. Learning to think and reason scares them all.
